Can anyone recommend a great restaurant city centre Glasgow?

Me and two student daughters. Not fussed on food type. Just something of reliably excellent quality.

Had thought of Amber Regent (which never disappoints) but looking for a change.

Not Chinese this time though, nor Indian.

Cheers.

City centre, I always used to love going to Sarti's (Italian) on Bath Street, but i've not been in years so no idea what it's like these days.

Others will probably be able to help you more!

Frequently eat there when in the Weeg, and have never been disappointed.

We've decided on Opium. Had lunch there once a long time ago. Always wanted to go for dinner.

Going stir crazy in this awful weather. The only time I've left the house the last two days was to collect the carry-out.

It was from the Manchurian (close to the Mounthooly roundabout).

If you like chinese food, this is the best in the area in my opinion. The fact that many chinese eat there provides good corroboration.

This won't affect any arseholes living outwith the North East of course but for any of you locals, check it out if you haven't before.

The Manchurian on Dumbarton Road, The Weege is also very good. Just in case any arseholes in the North East  ever join civilisation and need a Chinese in Glasgow's West End....

It's not about escaping. It's about getting out with a bit of dignity.
If you're in it, don't fucking moan about it, make it yours and leave a mark

Haha. Too shay. A rare laff on a site conspicuous by its humour void.

Get out of the sticks gentlemen, as the Wolf said. Dumbarton Road is too far out. Amber Regent and Opium are the best.

It is far out and a lot of hun shops down that stretch too, but Chow on Byres Rd is equally as good and obviously not quite so far out.  :thumbsup:

I don't know Chow so thanks for the recommendation. The Aberdeen Manchurian is the best chinese in my opinion up here but restaurants here are shite compared to the weege. We struggle to pick anywhere to go dining out in Aberdeen and eating out a lot, we get average too often.

No worries, but if you are up that end of town, Hanoi Bike Shop is very good for Vietnamese and Masala Twist for Indian.  The Bothy for Scottish food is excellent.

Wife and two daughters and the dog - 4 bitches - were in Offshore yesterday, Gibson Street I think, which they rate. In the west end, I really like Cafe Zique.

Not a huge fan of chains but if you like a burger, Byron or Byrons in Union Square was superb.

First visit. Won't be my last.

Unlike the Homemade Burger Co. next door. Only went once.

I too have been to Handmade Burger once and only once. It was shite. And I don't understand the whole paying extra for chips thing. It's a burger joint. You get chips with your burger surely?

I've also only heard good things about Byron. Looking forward to giving it a try.

It's business you don't understand. McDonalds don't give chips with burgers. Nobody does. Why would they? If you don't think it's value, you don't go. Simple.

The chips were very reasonably priced and a choice of fries. The normal ones were excellent. The coleslaw extra was expensive at £2.95 but I didn't grudge paying it. Between two, that and the onion rings was perfect. The cans of Byron beer was expensive too at £4.95 but an iced glass and a nice overall experience, I thought it was great.

In fact, I've never had a better burger meal experience.

Byron burger is very popular down here. Very good burgers imo. Quite a few decent independent ones as well. 5 guys is totally overrated.
